We start our homeschooling year tomorrow, and the first few days always feel a bit chaotic and crazy as everyone is trying to find their groove, me included. This week I'm utilizing my crock pot a lot in an effort to keep dinner time as easy and simple as possible. Most of these meals provide enough to have leftovers for lunch. I am also making snacks that have larger portions, so I can just grab and go. I am trying really really hard to stay on plan 100% this week. Stress and chaos always make it a bit harder for me.

***My meal plans are always FREE and available to print at anytime. All breakfasts, lunches and snacks are portioned for one unless otherwise noted. All dinners are portioned for 6.***

    1. I'm not a big dessert person. You could easily have one, just keep it the same fuel.
